Smith stands at periphery of celebrity

Friday, November 5th, 1999 - 8:27 am PST

A new study published this morning by H-NET/Fritz Media lists The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith as the 3,043rd most famous living American.  This position places Smith just outside the category of “celebrity”.  Smith’s current status is 157 notches higher than last year’s study, but he has failed to rise above the “occasioanlly noteworthy” category since 1993.
